Fox is discussing a revival of King Of The Hill, the classic animated series by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels.


"We had a very preliminary conversation about that," said Dana Walden, Chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, saying that only one meeting has taken place so far between the network and the show's creators. “It was really just a first, exploratory, ‘Are you excited about this?’ They were both excited about it but they’re both very busy individually so it’s about finding time,” Walden said.

Both Judge and Daniels are interesting in the prospect of new episodes thanks to the political climate of the United States, Walden said: "Given what’s going on in the country, I think they had a point of view about how those characters would respond.”

King Of The Hill premiered in 1997 and ran for 13 seasons before concluding in 2009.
